The world’s biggest sovereign wealth fund has warned Britain against watering down its listing rules to accommodate Saudi Aramco, describing such proposals as “a step back in terms of investor protection”.

The category would be designed for companies controlled by sovereign nations and would dilute rules to protect minority shareholders.
